TXT is a DNS record, which contains information in human-readable form for external sources to obtain information regarding a specific domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, this kind of record is employed to prove that you own a domain in case you are trying to add it to an online search engine or to some website traffic analytics platform. Since only the domain address owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a proof of ownership for the business supplying the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that helps to ensure that a particular email address isn’t spoofed and that people will not get junk e-mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains information about the mail server where your digital messages arrive from and serves as confirmation that it's a trusted one. As there are no rules concerning the content of this kind of a record, you can include any other info also.
